Breakfast with the Easter bunny, a bonnet parade and an egg hunt highlight this month’s Berlin Spring Celebration. 

The town will kick off a busy season of events with the Berlin Spring Celebration on Saturday, March 30. The popular annual event runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in downtown Berlin.

“We are thrilled to announce the return of one of our favorite family events, and all of the fun that comes with it,” said Ryan Nellans, executive director of the Berlin Chamber of Commerce. “We are welcoming back lots of familiar faces, including the Shake it Up Jam! and children’s book author Katie Ruskie. Our egg hunt on the Taylor House Museum lawn and our Midway on Main Street are back and better than ever with even more prizes, all made possible by our sponsors, Bradley Atlantic Insurance Management, Taylor Bank, and Jolly Roger Amusements.”

The day kicks off early, with the Berlin Fire Company hosting “Bunny Brunch” from 8 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. The event, which is $5 for kids under 10 and $10 for adults, will be held in the upstairs event hall at the station on Main Street. All-day parking will also be available at the firehouse, where cash donations will be accepted.

The spring celebration itself will begin with some fanfare, as a bonnet parade will run from the firehouse to the festival grounds on Main Street at 10 a.m. There, the best bonnets will win prizes and then children will be invited to visit the games that will make up “Midway on Main Street.” An egg hunt is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. on the lawn of the Taylor House Museum.

The spring celebration will also include live music from Shake it Up Jam! and appearances by Lollipop the Clown. 

In the days leading up to the spring celebration, Nellans noted that the town’s paper egg hunt was still underway.

“If you don’t already know, our paper egg hunt is still going until we draw two winners, who will each receive a $100 gift card to the best Ice cream in the United States – Island Creamery,” he said. “Forms for the hunt are available at the Berlin Visitors Center at 14 S Main St.”
